“This is so much more than a workplace safety book. It’s a life tool that I’ll be recommending to our safety committees and supervisors to use both on the job and at home.”

HOW MANY TIMES IN YOUR LIFE HAVE YOU THOUGHT, “HOW COULD I HAVE DONE SOMETHING SO STUPID?” EVEN THOUGH WE INTEND TO BE CAREFUL, WE ALL DO STUPID THINGS THAT LEAVE US EMBARRASSED (AT BEST), HURT, OR EVEN WORSE.


In How Smart People Can Stop Doing Stupid Things, Ron Johnston shares some of the key stories and strategies behind Method Oriented Safety Thinking,® a behavioral system he originally developed to keep people safe on the job. This book presents some of the most powerful stories collected from Ron’s speaking engagements, along with vital lessons from his long career in safety. It was written with one purpose in mind: to help readers apply the M.O.S.T. principles in all areas of life.

“Ron’s M.O.S.T. system has helped me as a manager dramatically lower our workers’ comp costs over the past decade. It works with working people, and it also works in real life. If you want to know about the M.O.S.T. system, just ask any of my kids or grandkids. They all know it. Whether I’m in the hayfield on the weekend or managing my team at work, Method Oriented Safety Thinking has saved me from doing a whole lot of stupid things.”
